Using a stable isotope probing methodology combined with secondary ion mass spectrometry-in situ hybridization (SIMSISH), insights were gained about the in situ ecophysiology of uncultivated members of the candidate division Waste Water of Evry 1 (WWE1). NanoSIMS observations using a specific iodized probe revealed that these microorganisms were actively assimilating 13C originating from labeled cellulose during anaerobic digestion.
